‘World-class facilities’ for Scots hospital
A LABORATORY revolution will see Scotland home to the most up-to-date facilities in the world, according to the country’s largest health board.
A £90 million state-of-the-art lab at Glasgow’s Southern General Hospital is now complete, which has amalgamated five other sites from the Greater Glasgow and Clyde area.
The modernisation project continues at Glasgow Royal Infirmary with the refurbishment of the University Tower, which began earlier this year. Further work will update analysing equipment. The refurbishment is due for completion by mid-2013.
Aileen MacLennan, board director of diagnostics, said: “This is another significant investment in laboratory medicine which will see us with some of the most modern, up-to-date laboratory facilities in the world.
“Our laboratory services are undergoing significant improvements in both accommodation facilities and equipment.
